If you could see anyone in concert who would it be?
Mary J Blige, again.

I've just been to Latin America on holiday and have been listening to a song called Arroyito by a Columbian singer, Fonseca.
What is the next film you would like to see?
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, because I like the cast and a good, long spy thriller.
What's your ideal way of relaxing after a stressful day in the office?
Good food and great red wine.
If you weren't working in financial services, what would you be doing?
I like being creative, so developing my own business, or using my linguistics degree in some way, maybe speech therapy or writing.
